    Lost friend from Mapperley

    Hi Edgar, John Decara and I sat the same dinner table when we were at Rushcliffe. Like you I have not seen John for over 40 years which was approximately two years before I moved to Australia. Good luck, I hope you are able to locate him. Regards, Will 2017

  7. I remember the "pretty garden" on Cavendish Road. I also remember walking across the "Alps" and Rusher Field. I never heard the allotments being called "Robin Hood" allotments. The houses on and around the Campbell Drive were commenced in the early 1950s. Regards, Will2017

      It certainly was.

  14. Hi Paradiddle, thank you for the reply. I did not know Pete Mee or Graham Pearce-I attended Rushcliffe Technical Grammar School and not Cavendish SMS. My first post dated 27 January 2018 contains more info. Three of the Tykons, who went to Cavendish and were in a school group called the Cavochords, asked me to join them. We went to a music night at the school and asked a singer (who also went to Cavendish) to join. There are pics of the Tykons, Litter and Younger Generation on the playedinaband.com website. On the site there are also pictures of various groups with other former Tykons members. Ishould have posted some of the group info. on the Nottingham Bands in the 60s thread. Regards, Will
  15. Hi Paradiddle, I was the bass player in the Tykons. I am pleased you enjoyed the Gedling Secondary Modern gig in 1964 and that it inspired you to seek out more live music. The 1960's live music scene in Nottingham was great with so many groups and venues. Regards, Will2017
